The Gaelic Enrichment Course to use and develop your Gaelic language skills within a community setting, with beginner to fluent levels available. Classes include grammar, conversational skills, resources for the classroom, active learning (including workshops and fieldtrips) and review & consolidation, as well as evening activities. Students acquire contemporary Gaelic, as used within a modern-day community.

Ceòlas Uibhist Ltd is rooted within the Gaelic heartland of South Uist, helping to preserve and celebrate the community’s unique Gaelic inheritance. The island’s rich wealth of music, language and culture remains strong. South Uist is home to the highest percentages of Gaelic language speakers in Scotland (Scotland’s Census, 2011), and Gaelic culture is inseparable from community. Research by Soillse (G Wells, 2011) also shows the Uist community as a particularly supportive and encouraging environment for Gaelic language learning.
